The Kwara State branch of the Peoples Democratic Party has placed an indefinite suspension on the youth leader of the state party, Mr Danshoho Mahmoud over an alleged ungentlemanly outburst on the activities of the party in the state.

The PDP in a statement released on Tuesday and signed by its Publicity Secretary, Prince Tunji Morohunfoye said that the party’s working committee at its meeting on Tuesday approved the suspension of Mahmoud.

According to the statement, “The Kwara State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has resolved on a decision, after the State Working Committee (SWC) met today, Tuesday 22/08/2023, consequent to receiving the report of the disciplinary committee set up to look into the matter of the ungentlemanly outbursts by the State Youth leader, Prince Haliru Dansoho Mahmoud against the party

“The report received from the disciplinary committee showed clearly that the state Youth Leader was guilty of all the charges brought against him by party members who petitioned the state party echelon

“After consideration of the disciplinary committee’s report, the SWC of the party has decided to suspend the state Youth Leader indefinitely,” Morohunfoye said in the statement.

Recall that Mahmoud had led some members to challenge how the fund allocated to the party for February 25, 2023, Presidential and National Assembly elections were expended by the State Working Committee.

He said, “I’m not asking for anyone to be probed,  just ask the SWC to provide an explanation on how the fund released by the National Secretariat of PDP to Kwara state for the prosecution of the Presidential and National Assembly elections was spent”, the youth leader said.

Consequently, the party in June, set up a disciplinary committee to look into the petitions.
